SPAIN will be spending almost €10 million in a scheme to adapt to climatic change and repair coastal damage.
The Minister of Agriculture Isabel Garcia Tejerina has announced a new project which will be doing work as of April on Spanish coasts to repair damage and attempt to prevent it in the future.
“Spain is very vulnerable to climatic change because it is a peninsula,” Garcia Tejerina said.
Work will be done in many coastal areas to regenerate beaches affected by storms, restore dunes, marshes and wetlands, stabilise estuary mouths and protect against erosion, the Minister explained.
Funds will also be used to improve investigation on climatic change with an aim to future damage prevention.
